Appraisal Review & Collateral Due Diligence

Property Sciences is a market share leader in appraisal reviews, having built a reputation for accuracy, fairness, and fast turnaround. Entrusted by numerous clients nationwide to assist with their collateral due diligence, we would encourage any prospective client to inquire within the industry as to their experiences and observations of Property Sciences’ strong understanding of the valuation process, superior level of service, and our unmatched record of protection against fraud, buybacks, and poor collateral quality.

Lender Software Solutions

Property Sciences offers proprietary, web-based software solutions to assist lenders with fully compliant single and/or multi-vendor management, allowing lenders and their brokers and business partners to connect and collaborate electronically through an easy-to-use originator-facing website that takes the appraisal process from start to finish while staying fully compliant with GFE, TILA, AIR, and electronic GSE delivery requirements.

We will privately label your public facing broker website, allowing you to directly control the business processes. Originators can track the process in the appraisal pipeline to determine the status of each order in the account. The viewable tracking process includes receipt, acceptance, scheduling, appointment set, inspection, quality control and possible addendums. Notations of any complications which may have arisen within the process are also visible. Our lenders no longer worry about anything other than closing loans; we insulate you from the technical details involved, reduce your costs, increase efficiency and, most importantly, let you get down to business – focusing on your loan pipeline. Property Sciences gives you the advantage with standards-current solutions, streamlining your lending operation.

We offer a private label, plug-and-play version that allows you fully compliant control over the appraisal management process, as well as a highly customized version utilizing an XML feed that integrates into your current LOS for a very robust and customer-specific solution to your lending operations.

Training Programs

Property Sciences offers on-going training programs to your staff in order for them to better understand and manage appraisal risk. Our straightforward seminars can be tailored to incorporate your specific company needs. Programs include single-family, 2-4 units, and reviewing procedures that educate underwriters, processors, and account representatives.
